Carole Feuerman

Carole A. Feuerman is acknowledged, alongside Duane Hanson and John D'Andrea, as one of the three major American hyperrealist sculptors that started the movement in the 1970’s. Feuerman’s career spans over four decades and four continents. At the heart of her sculptures are visual stories of strength, survival, and balance. Feuerman has taught, lectured, and given workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture. In 2011, she founded the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation. Feuerman has had solo museum retrospectives at the El Paso Museum in Texas, the Huan Tai Hu Museum of Jiangsu Province in China, the Amerillo Art Museum, the Tampa Museum, the Southern Allegneny Museum, QCC, CUNY Museum, and the Queens Museum of Art. In 2013, her sculpture, The General’s Daughter was exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.

In 2007, Feuerman had a solo exhibition in Venice called Bellezza E Beressaze: By the Sea, in the Venice Biennale, curated by John T. Spike, featuring her monumental sculpture Survival of Serena for the first time. In 2008, Survival of Serena was chosen ‘Best in The Show’ at the Beijing Biennale and was exhibited at the National Museum of China. In 2013, Survival of Serena was chosen by New York City Department of Parks & Recreation for exhibition in Soho, New York and again in 2017 it was exhibited in Central Park for their celebration of 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks.

Currently Feuerman has nine monumental sculptures in Paris on the Champs- Élysées and Avenue George V. Her iconic sculptures Catalina and The General’s Daughter are traveling in a group show titled 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Sculpture. The show originated in 2016 at Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, Spain and then traveled to the Academia de Bellas Artes in Madrid, to the Marco Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Monterrey, to Denmark’s Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Sydney, the Kunsthal Tübingen in Germany, the Heydar Aliyev in Azerbaijan and is now at The National Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan. 

Her art is included in the collections of the President and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Frederic R. Weisman Art Foundation, Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Michael Gorbachev Art Foundation, The State Hermitage, the Metropolitan Museum and the Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection. Feuerman's selected awards include Best in Show at the Third International Beijing Art Biennale, Beijing, CN, the 2001 Lorenzo De Magnifico Award for the Biennale Internazionale: Dell'Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy, The Prize of Honor in 2002 for the Ausstellungszentrum Heft in Huttenberg, Austria, and the Medici Prize awarded by the City of Florence. There are four full-color monographs written about her work.
